A loan helped to purchase cloth to make children's pajamas.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 29 years old and lives in the city of Otavalo in northern Ecuador. She is married and lives with her husband and their children. Her children are aged nine and four. Rosa is a serious person. She is also hard-working and responsible. In her business, she makes children’s pajamas. She began her own business three years ago with the intention of working to support her children while being able to keep them by her side as she worked. This is Rosa’s first loan and she will use it to invest in cloth for her business. She hopes that the loan will help her to economically provide for the well-being of her children. In the future, Rosa wants to expand her business and employ others.
